Rumor: Kevin Garnett & Paul Pierce deal to Brooklyn could include more teams, players

Mike Ehrmann

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that the Boston Celtics could trade Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the Brooklyn Nets. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the definition of a #WojBomb.

Details are sketchy at this point and we'll keep updating as this story unfolds. One thing to keep in mind: Atlanta has the right to trade draft picks with Brooklyn in 2014 and 2015.

My initial reaction is NO, NO, NO. Wallace is owed over $30 million over the next three years and with that Hawks-pick-swapping stipulation, it's an awful deal. The biggest problem in trading with Brooklyn is that they have a collection of bad contracts and if the aim is to rebuild, priority #1 has to be shedding players who do little and get paid too much. Let's not forget that Rajon Rondo and Kris Humphries aren't exactly best buds.

It's no wonder now why Doc left. Let's all just hope that Danny is posturing here.

UPDATE:

What could "bigger" mean? My guess is, Danny is making a run at Marshon Brooks who they initially drafted two years ago but traded for JaJuan Johnson, but if my CBA math is right, Billy King would have to include another player if the Celtics want to send over Terry or Lee. Reggie Evans? Tyshawn Taylor?

UPDATE #2:

There was a rumor earlier this week about creating a TPE in order to bring in Josh Smith. Could a third or even fourth team facilitate that?
